You can control multiple smart home products (like lights) all at once by putting them into a ‘group’ in the Smart Home section of the Alexa app. For example, if the group name is “ceiling lights”, you can say “Turn on ceiling lights” to turn them all on at once, instead of having to remember individual names. When you associate an Echo device in the same group as your smart home devices (like lights), Alexa can act intelligently on your request, so when you say “Alexa, lights on” when standing in the room that corresponds to your group, she will turn on the lights in that room without having to remember the specific name of your group.
Here are some detailed instructions for creating your group from Amazon Customer service:
Open the Alexa app.
Go to the menu, and select Smart Home.
Select Add Group, and then select a group type:
Smart Home Group: Turn device on/off, lock etc. When you add an Alexa to a group with Smart Devices you don't have to remember the device names.
Mulit-Room Music Group: Stream music on multiple Echo devices at once.
5. Enter a name for your group or select from the list of Common Names.
6. Select the smart home devices you want to add to the group, and then select Save.
